While most people can appreciate the beauty of the grasslands and rocky canyons of Northern Arizona, the land holds a special meaning for Ka-Voka Jackson.
Ka-Voka Jackson wants to replace invasive plants with native ones at the Glen Canyon National Recreation Area.
In a remote canyon off the northern reaches of Lake Powell, a fourwing saltbush is growing deep roots as part of Ka-Voka Jackson's experimental plots of native plants. The silvery, sea-green shrub is joining grasses and succulents in Jackson's efforts to remedy ravenna grass infestations that threaten native flora and fauna in the sacred ancestral lands of her tribe and others around the Colorado River.

Itchy, watery eyes, congestion and don't forget the sneezing. Have you seen the yellow dust collecting on your car? The culprit is pollen and it has been floating in the air much earlier than expected this year. Plants pollinated by insects are not the biggest offenders, the highest pollen producers are male trees that spread pollen by the wind. University of Nevada Cooperative Extension Professor M.L. Robinson said this pollen came early this year due to the mild winter and early spring.
